Setting the mathematical tone

Two students will be asked to come to the front of the room. Each
student will draw a card with out looking at it. They will place the
card on their forehead so that everyone can see their card except
them. At this point, the class can see both cards and each volunteer
can see only the other’s card. I will ask someone in the class to tell
me what the numbers on each volunteers’ heads add up to. Once I call
on someone, the volunteers must figure out what their card is from the
answer the class gave and the other students card. Whoever answers
first, wins, and stays up for the next challenger.
